Eye Opener (1950)
Reduced to its simplest form, the only true worship is to love God,
 and the only way to demonstrate this love is to serve your fellow man.
 We in AA show the extent of our moral growth in the extent of our service to others. 
It is the only true spiritual experience. 
The flash of light that some of us experience could be only the first
ray of intelligence that finally penetrated the alcoholic fog and dazzled our minds.
   The true spiritual experience is evidenced by a passion to do those things 
which delight the spirit. By their works shall ye know them.

 a man or woman of practical use to himself or herself.”

THE TREASURE OF THE PAST
Showing others who suffer how we were given help is the very thing which makes life seem so worth while to us now. Cling to the thought that, in God’s hands, the dark past is the greatest possession you have—the key to life and happiness for others. With it you can avert death and misery for them.
— ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS, p. 124
What a gift it is for me to realize that all those seemingly useless years were not wasted. The most degrading and humiliating experiences turn out to be the most powerful tools in helping others to recover. In knowing the depths of shame and despair, I can reach out with a loving and compassionate hand, and know that the grace of God is available to me.

A COURSE IN MIRACLES

Lesson 28
Above all else I want to see things differently.
Today we are really giving specific application to the idea for yesterday. In these practice periods, you will be making a series of definite commitments. The question of whether you will keep them in the future is not our concern here. If you are willing at least to make them now, you have started on the way to keeping them. And we are still at the beginning.
 
You may wonder why it is important to say, for example, “Above all else I want to see this table differently.” In itself it is not important at all. Yet what is by itself? And what does “in itself” mean? You see a lot of separate things about you, which really means you are not seeing at all. You either see or not. When you have seen one thing differently, you will see all things differently. The light you will see in any one of them is the same light you will see in them all.

The magnificent painting of creation stretches 
across the Infinite Canvas of time and space.
Every object and event in nature is a masterful stroke of the Great Painter.
Paramahansa Yogananda

“Yea! I believe that He who made the skies
Is wonderfully good, and very wise,–
Beloved Friend! Hast thou never seen
The tears of pity gather in His eyes?” 
― Omar Khayyám
